Total skin electron therapy

In advanced cases of fungoid mycosis, total skin electron therapy is recommended. With this technique, the patient is irradiated in different positions with fields of electrons so that the skin is evenly treated. Low energy electrons are used to reduce deep-level toxicity .

Advantages: The Trilogy Tx accelerator al MD Anderson Spain is equipped with a special ultra high dose mode allowing TSET treatment times to be cut. Treatment times are up to four times shorter than with conventional accelerators.
